groups of conjunctions, that is, conjunctions for extension and enhancement were selected for analyses. This is because the monoConc corpus developed consisted of mostly research reports. This means that an academic style of writing is used in the corpus’ articles. Academic writing employs a descriptive style that is aimed at explaining the cause of an effect and convincing readers of a report to accept or agree with the findings. In addition, scientific or academic writing dictates that one adopts a formal style of writing. To some extent, this style dictates the type of conjunctions to be used in writing the report. In that case, academic writers tend to have a bias for conjunctions that show addition, clarification, exemplification and contrast. Finally, considering that the corpus consisted of written text, conjunctions that would be normally used in spoken corpuses, for example, as I was saying, to get back to the point etcetera, were avoided. The classification model for the conjunctions was adopted from (Halliday & Mettlessen, 2014).
These types of conjunctions are used to add new but related information to an existing clause. They are further subdivided into the following subtypes;
Positive (also, and, moreover, in addition)
Adversative (but, yet, on the other hand, however)
Replacive (instead, on the contrary)
Subtractive (except for that, apart from that)
These types of…
Genogroup B in the late 1990s found to have sudden increases of genetic diversity which correspond to the time when the major HFMD outbreaks were happened in Asia. The observed dynamics of the plot are mostly corresponded with the recorded global surveillance data of EV71 cases over the past 4 decades. Similar results were obtained when using the VP1 gene from genogroup C. This implies that the elevation in genetic diversity is correlated with EV71 epidemics.

staff to patient ratios, or allow the hospital to make decisions about staffing levels, even if it means fewer staff working longer hours? This is a question that affects millions of hospitals and also effects protocols in hospitals all over the world. I rarely visit the hospital, but if I go to the hospital and it’s a very serious case will I be treated quickly enough?
Registered nurses have long recognized and continue to point out that staffing issues are an ongoing problem. It…
another field of study. You will observe other classes of other majors and you will take notes on certain things that caught your interest and that can influence you in working toward a different career that is not related to your major. After years in years college, you might be in a career that you will never expect in being. Most students who studied to be a lawyer would probably change into a teacher in the long run. In this research you can view it in two different proposal ways, either way…
Examples of demographics include; your location, education level, gender, and age. Michael grew up in a populous city in the tidewater region of Virginia. His classes were predominantly African American’s and Caucasians. Interestingly enough, there was a similar mix of individuals that lived in the suburbs compared to individuals living in low-income housing. The ratio of men to women in his classes was very similar. I believe that the ratio of men to women in classes is not a definitive…

Nurse staffing is a complex issue with no easy…
Earning per share ratio is one of the profitability ratios computed by the net income less preferred dividends and divided the weighted average common shares outstanding. In 2015, Google’s earning per share ratio is $22.84. This indicates that if Google distributed every dollar of income to its shareholders, each shareholder would receive $22.84. In addition, Google’s earning per share ratios also increase from $20.57 in 2014 to $22.84 in 2015. These ratios in recent years are high, which means…
weekly attendance group has fewer than 5,700 attendees. Furthermore, the red bar and blue bar combined represents the total membership per size category. For example, there are almost 7,000 total weekly attendees and almost 8,600 members attributed to all churches that fall within Group 400+.
The largest section of membership is captured in churches between 50-124 weekly attendees with 30% of the conference’s total membership. Additionally, Baltimore-Washington churches below 35 weekly attendees…
Aborted Girls, Wanted Brides
Cultural preference for boys in parts of India results in some of the largest imbalances between males and females in the world. This leads to sex-selective abortions and infanticide of girls, while boys are prized because they are believed to mature as leaders of the world and household, as they pass on the family name and traditions. This perpetuates the ongoing role of patriarchy and the customary belief that men are superior and dominant to their female…
